Savory Beef in Gravy

This is a great "go to" recipe for shredded beef with tons of uses. 
Great served as is over some pepper jack cheesy mashed potatoes or polenta, 
or shred it for quesadillas, enchiladas, tacos, burritos, etc.

I happened to make Beef Tostadas with Green Chile Sauce

Now don't get me wrong when I say this. The beef is excellent, but I 
gotta tell you. For me, the  Green Chile Sauce stole the show. 

Seriously delicious, 6 ingredients including salt and pepper, and so easy.
